@cwebber huh, my gnus-no-groups-message is set to "No news is good news". I wonder if they changed it back?

@cwebber it took me until I read this to realize that "Gnus" is a pun on "News".

I wasn't expecting a gratis lunch to be so good :]

This is fucking absurd. Second train I can't get on because there's no space.

@erkin ah, didn't know that. I'm close friends with the author's son, but don't know that much about it.

Let's hope there aren't any more red line derailments today.

Excellent talk by Carl Dong about building and trusting software, featuring #guix !


And I'll be at NEWSDR at UMass Boston this week (signed up for the technical tutorial hosted by Ettus Research for Thursday). The same offer applies to anyone attending that.

Oh, yeah. I'll be in Amsterdam and a few cities in Germany mid-August if anyone wants to meet up.

Descendents and Dead Kennedys are playing in Amsterdam the weekend I'm there!

Anyone who's experienced with game engine network programming interested in helping GZDoom get its client-server multiplayer branch fully working? Here's a brief report on its current state from one of the developers, I can put you in touch if you're interested:

The old batteries were fucking heavy. I'm exhausted.

I'd say today was productive. All three of the new batteries are installed, the charge controller is programmed, and we got the four lead-acid batteries across the inlet for responsible disposal. Only thing we didn't get around to doing was programming the FLEXnet because our Mate's firmware was too old. That's pretty low-priority though, so we'll do that next time we go up.

@dthompson yeah, lot less fun if you're missing the crash :v

@dthompson if you don't end up buying one and still need a crash, I have a smaller one you could borrow. Chris mentioned you're nearby

when discord asks for your phone number, or facebook wants you to upload a picture of your face, or twitter makes you create an account to view the "tweets and replies" tab...

that's a paywall
